A bit of a catch up

Not a lot of new "stuff" has been going on around here.

  • Bob's health has continued to improve, slow and steady.  He's been under the care of a GI doc in San Diego, for over a year, now; since he was hospitalized with neuropathy in his stomach.  She's done wonders for him.  We go to her office in San Diego twice a month for infusions.  It's so worth the drive, and I get to go the the zoo!  Bob still has a lot of pain related to back and leg issues, so he won't be running a Half Marathon or 10K, ever again.  His spirits are good, and he's happy.
  • I haven't worked for over 3 months, and the only thing I miss are the great people I worked with.  I really didn't miss working the holiday season this year with all it's craziness.  I worked in retail for over 20 years, 8 as a manager, 12 part time at B&N, and 3 part time at a frame shop.  It's good to be really retired.
  • I've never been one for New Year's Resolutions.  I'm more a cup half full kind of gal.  I did make two changes in December.  I started walking regularly.  The big one is I'm on a FABRIC diet.  I have enough fabric, I believe, to be able to sew for one year, without purchasing fabric.  I do fear running out of white, for background fabric.  I usually buy it by the bolt, but I could run out.
  • To help with the fabric diet, I entered a  tutorial in a online contest and was selected as 1 of 5 finalist!  That was big for me, and for being a finalist, I won a fabric shop gift certificate!  Yipee.  I was also notified I won some fabric from a manufacturer, this week.  Yay! 
  • We did have a great Christmas Dinner at our daughter Sharon's house.  For the past several years, since Carrie moved to NC, we've shared Christmas Day with Sharon's BFF's family.  Merging the two families a couple times a year was so much fun, but Kimberly has re-located to Iowa, and while we were all welcomed to join her, we decided to stay in semi-warm SoCal.  Sharon did a great job with the dinner and it was delicious.
That's the end of my catch up.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,

  1. Thank you for the update. I was going to ask you how Bob was doing. I too am on a fabric diet. I could probably go 2 or 3 years without buying fabric. Sigh
